"If this is an example of just how strong many 2015s will be, we’re in for another treat from Northern California." - Robert Parker
Here’s a 95-point Chardonnay from one of Northern California’s most exceptional talents, Dick Arrowood, whom Parker has called “one of the surest hands in California winedom” and has put in the "top echelon of producers" when it comes to Chardonnay. Limited in production (we managed to get just a handful of the scant quantity that’s made) and with a terrific price, Chardonnay lovers will want to act quickly to get a piece of the action.
As Parker notes, regardless of where Arrowood has put his efforts during his 50+ year career, “he has had a reputation for fashioning brilliant Chardonnays”, and it looks to still be the case with this 2015 release. This gem encompasses everything that’s great about Russian River Chardonnay - richness and acidity beautifully balanced, complexity and overall elegance.
A remarkable Chardonnay from impeccable single vineyard terroir in the Russian River Valley, made by one of the best in the business, snatch this one up while you can. Cheers!
